NTP-STAG will be hosting EXPO 2020, its annual dealer event, at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas, Jan. 13-14.
“We are returning to the Gaylord Texan in 2020 because it is a great location to host an event,” says John Spaulding, Director of Communications and Events at NTP-STAG. “It’s an incredibly easy place to get to no matter where you are coming from and the weather in January tends to be more predictable and less severe than more northern and remote locations. Our customers coming from Canada, the Midwest or either coast will find Texas a welcoming atmosphere full of hospitality,” he says.
EXPO 2020 will host RV University and the PRO Education Seminars on day one of the event. That evening will feature an opening reception on the show floor. The following day will be highlighted by a full day on the exhibit floor and special closing reception. The EXPO is expected to attract more than 200 exhibiting companies and NTP-STAG customers from across North America.
“It’s important for us to show our appreciation to our customers by hosting this event every year. Their loyalty to our programs and people are critical to our success and we like to celebrate that with them by providing excellent educational programming, terrific buying opportunities and plenty of fun,” Spaulding says.
